The benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy
The science behind the value of scent in healing isn’t new. Aromatherapy has a long history, with the extraction of aromatic essential oils from plants going back to the ancient Egyptians. “In 1910, a French scientist named Gattefosse discovered the healing power of lavender oil. This encouraged him to research other aromatic essences. He found that with the use of lemon, thyme, clove and other antiseptic oils, wounds healed more quickly and without infection. He called his medicine aromatherapie.” (Source)
